Study of N2 fixation and UV radiation on cyanobacterial mats in continental Antarctica
Entry ID: CNDA-ESP_ANT96-2174-E

Abstract: IN ENGLISH:
The data were taken in the lagoon thaw zone situated in the Mc Murdo Ice Shelf
zone, next to Bratina Island. The following was taken:

-Samples of cyanobacterial communities in 13 lagoons to microscopically
analysis and 15N natural abundance.
-Measurements of N2 fixation in the lagoon bacterial communities.
-Study of the daily variation in the N2 fixation
-Experiments in land through ... View entire text
